Hello, My name is Maharshi Patel and I am a proud LJSA former student. My experience for all the 5 years at LJSA was diversified due to the unique blend of most senior professors working in the field of Architecture for more than three decades to the Young enthusiastic professors who have always been helpful in the best way possible to synchronise our ideas of design and make it work practically. Besides study, I have discovered a lot of old as well as new building materials in a variety of workshops at LJSA and how to handle these materials in the most unique way possible.
